Over the last 24 years, the Annual Workshop on Automorphic Forms and Related Topics has remained a small and friendly conference. Those attending range from students to new PhD's to established researchers. For young researchers, the conference has provided support and encouragement. For accomplished researchers, it has provided the opportunity to mentor as well as a forum for exchanging ideas.

The workshop has become internationally recognized for both its high-quality research talks and its supportive atmosphere for junior researchers. Participants present cutting-edge research in all areas related to automorphic forms. These include Maass wave forms, elliptic curves, Siegel and Jacobi modular forms, special values of L-functions, random matrices, quadratic forms, applications of modular forms, and many other topics.

In addition to research talks, the workshop has, in the past years, featured panel discussion sessions on the topics of grant writing, mentoring and research partnerships, REUs and outreach, and opportunities for international collaborations. Based on the success of these sessions, we plan to have similar panel sessions this year as well.

Our topics include:

  1. Research with Students: from attracting students to publishing
  2. Navigating career transitions

There is a $40 registration fee. This fee will be used to provide a daily continental breakfast, light refreshments throughout the day, and conference mug. Each participant is strongly encouraged to give a talk which is typically 20, 30, or 40 minutes in length (mostly your choice). Talks will begin the morning of Wednesday March 23, and end in the late afternoon on Saturday March 26.

This gorgeous design was created by Tom Boothby using SAGE.
It depicts f^{-1}(r e^{i n\pi / 6}) for real r and n=0,1,...,6 for the modular form f associated to the elliptic curve 1058d1 defined by E: y^2 + xy + y = x^3 - x^2 - 1838x - 5156.
Thank you Tom!
